THE OVERTHINKER Lately I been thinking greatly About the fact I overthink The little things I oughta think innately Should I ask how you are? Should I wave from afar? Should you walk into this empty bar
MEAN PEOPLE SUCK You told him that he was cool and he was cruel to you I think that guy is just mean, you've seen it too You cried until your eyes turned red Looking for a place to bury your head Can I join your heart out on the line? I think you're fine That jerk is out of his mind Out of his mind Out of his mind
CONDITIONED RESPONSE Maybe it’s something in her voice Pardon me, for I have no choice Maybe it’s something in her eyes Pardon me, I’m domesticized Conditioned response Anything that my baby wants Compelled to obey I wouldn’t have it any other way
Cold Feeling 00:33
COLD FEELING I got a cold feeling down my spine It shocks my soul and it freezes my mind And I know what I'm gonna find If I turn to you for love
Cuneiform 00:42
CUNEIFORM I got a letter here written in cuneiform It starts, "The sky is clear and my heart is warm." But on the day you left, I tucked that note away Now it's an artifact but damned if it don't read the same
MY GIRLFRIEND IS A RACIST My girlfriend is a racist That's just the case, it's a sad reality Because she's pretty, intelligent and witty It's such a pity, 'cause so good to me But my girlfriend, is a mother#@!ing racist It's such a waste, it's just not meant to be
Kill Me Now 00:31
KILL ME NOW Well, I can't believe I said I love you You couldn't wait to say you feel the same After years living alone in sorrow And in shame It's like I died and shuffled off to heaven It's all the joy that my heart can allow And it won't get better than this moment So kill me now
MORE POWER TO YOU Do you believe there's something else? Do you think you'd recognize yourself on the other side? I'm impressed by your pride More power to you Do you believe there's something more? Do you think that we've been here before and will be again? Well kudos my friend More power to you
DON'T WANT TO BE ALONE I asked, "Do you need some time?" She told me, "Unh-unh, I'm fine. “And I know that I don't want to be alone..." I said, "Great." She said, "Wait...” “I don't want to be alone, with you."
Talk Show 00:35
TALK SHOW Baby, don't go on that talk show Baby, don't go on that talk show, baby Baby, don't go on that talk show, they won't treat you fair Baby don't go on that talk show, they don't really care
INTO THE WILD Temper, temper, such a tantrumous child She hid her teeth behind that hypnotic smile But if you can't tame the cat There's a solution to that Release her into the wild
BREAKING IN IS HARD TO DO Sitting in my car waiting for the back door With the A.M. radio The neighbors pay no attention 'Cause no one really knows When she walks out and drives away I'll wait until the inning ends Break inside, take what's mine And never see my home again
PUNK ROCK MUSIC I'm intrigued by punk rock music It's loud and vicious but don't confuse it with heavy metal Though it will get all your anguish out Punk rock music is all about everyday problems And the people who got 'em And I like people who like Punk rock music
Sleepyhead 00:13
SLEEPYHEAD Rise and shine, sleepyhead Everyone that you know is dead You've snoozed your cares away Whatchoo gonna dare to dream today?
OPP 'N' CIRCUMSTANCE The desert, it erupted in flame And we knew the world, it would not be the same Destruction, without a hitch Congratulations, now you're a son of a bitch Science, twisted to our demands Even as I can't wash off this blood from my hands The mushroom, in a flash it unfurled I'm become Death, the destroyer of worlds I'm become Death, the destroyer of worlds I'm become Death, the destroyer of worlds
CARDIAC ARREST What the hell are you lookin’ at, idiot? It takes a few drinks until I start feelin’ it A bad antidote for the pain that’s in my chest Is it my old broken heart or is it just cardiac arrest?
THANK YOU/DAMN YOU Thank you for seeing through my lies But damn you, you could at least act surprised I made mistakes and for your sake I tried to hide But you wouldn’t fake it For my sake and for your pride
